Maharaja Duleep Singh was bought to England in 1854. He lived his adult life on the Elvedon Hall Estate in Suffolk, where he lived the life of an English country squire.

The Elvedon Hall Estate was modified to a slightly more eastern style under the eye of Duleep Singh. After his death in 1893 the estate was sold to the Earl of Iveagh, and is currently not open to the public. His grave is located in the churchyard in the grounds of the Estate – this is open to public view. Also in the graveyard are the graves of Bamba Muller Duleep Singh (his first wife) and Prince Albert Duleep Singh (one of their son’s).
